The management is horrible to deal with. We were corresponding with them about blocking rooms for a wedding. They told me that they had 10 available. They asked for contact info and said that they would get it set up. We sent the info asked for. When guests started booking rooms, they were told there were none. And after speaking... More

The hotel recently changed hands. We were there for a wedding, and stayed for a family vacation. The place was clean, the staff was weirdly accommodating but rude at the same time. They allowed the family to use the breakfast area for our own get togethers. They were short with us and disorganized when we all checked in, even screwing... More

Unfortunately, our experience using the Magnuson Grand for our wedding block was just a mess in every sense of the word. We had chosen them because they were close to our venue and provided a shuttle for free to our guests – in hindsight, we would rather have paid an extra expense to hire a professional shuttle service and found...

Rooms were not too bad although I found a long black hair in the bathtub. Room were roomy and beds were comfy. Breakfast was not a great experience. Tried to make a pancake after a man tried to make one as well. Neither of us had any luck and nobody from the hotel was there monitoring.

We stayed here because of their proximity to the casino next door. The hotel was modern and clean and the staff was fantastic. We dealt with both Sheree and Kevonda who were efficient and friendly. They gave us a $10 voucher to use at the casino, and I think that they give it to anyone who asks. So, be sure... More

My husband and I liked the location of the Magnuson Hotel. On one side you are about 1 block away from the Hochunk Casino. On the other side you have a short walk down the road to a gas station/convenience store and then there is Reverend Jim's Roadhouse restrain (I highly recommend trying it). Our room was ready early and... More

Our niece was married at Over the Vines and the Magnuson was picked as the hotel to stay at because it had a shuttle to the Vines. Upon check in we went to our room and the smell of smoke in the room was just overwhelming, we were given the room next door and it was better but the rooms... More

We stayed one night. I peaked into the pool area and it was showing its age, but looked like it would do if you had kids. The public areas were clean...the carpet in the halls was in good shape and well kept and the lobby bathroom was sort of clean. The rooms are spacious and the bed linen and cover... More

I have stayed here twice during the past month. The rooms are large and clean, and the staff is friendly. It's right off the Interstate with easy access to downtown Madison. There is little to do near the hotel, except the casino, but there's plenty to do within a 5 to 10 minute drive. The only complaint I have is... More

We stayed at the Magnuson while in town for a basketball tournament. The phone in our room was broken. The lady at the front desk tried to tell me that I did not know how to use the phone. Someone came to fix it, it needed to be replaced. The replacement phone also did not work. The front desk said... More
